Photos by Troutnut from Dresserville Creek in New York

I got several nice insect photographs in this calm pool, part of an extremely tiny side channel of a small trout stream.  When I eventually waded into it to get a better angle, several Hendrickson nymphs panicked and emerged. From Dresserville Creek in New York.

After I took this photo, this specimen was swept out of this tiny pool into a riffle downstream, where I swooped it up with my aquarium net and brought it home to photograph.  See it up close here.  In this picture: Mayfly Species Paraleptophlebia adoptiva (Blue Quill). From Dresserville Creek in New York.
